Easter trail 7

Well done – you found the seventh egg!

Jesus is beaten – Jesus was beaten by the soldiers; we refer to his beating as receiving “stripes”. When Jesus was on the cross he was pierced in the side. The prophet Isaiah had predicted that this would happen when he wrote:

“But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.”

Isaiah 53 v5
